When was the first time you...: Monday Night

Okay, so it's not technically Monday night, but I had a request from a bored reader to post early so here goes:

You ever got drunk?

The first time I ever got drunk was at my brother's rehearsal dinner (the first one, as it turns out) and I was 15 (about a month shy of 16) and there was an open bar. My brother's friends kept sneaking me drinks -although, looking back I am pretty sure my parents knew what was going on. By the time I sat down for the dinner I had four different drinks sitting in front of me (I have never been a half-assed drinker) and I was starting to feel the effects of the adult beverages. As I had never been drunk before, it took me a couple of minutes to figure out what was wrong with me and then I got really paranoid and worried that my parents would freak out. My brother happened to get up and in some sort of drunken, slurred "whisper" I told my brother I needed help. He was a little annoyed (being part of his special day and all) and I informed him that I thought I "might" be intoxicated. He escorted me to the bathroom where I splashed some water on my face and I sobered up a bit after walking around. That's about it for the first time being drunk. Incidentally, the second time I got drunk was the next night at the reception :)

I was in Mexico on a study abroad trip (I was about 20). My friend, Rachel, and I decided to take a trip to Puerto Vallarta...and, well, we began drinking around 10 that morning and just kept going. Somewhere along the way, I fell into the pool and I had a horrible hangover!

I don't remember!! I do know that I drank several times before I ever got drunk. I always do everything in moderation, you know...

Sarah, that's kinda sad. You should think up the most memorable early drinking experience. Heh, everything in moderation...

When I lived in Japan when I was fifteen. They had beer machines on the street. It was a magical place :) Thanks for posting early-(even though I'm just now responding!)-you always keep me amused at work!

my first time was at a party senior year of high-school I drank two beers. To be fair, I hadn't eaten all day. Now it takes about three beers. my mom knew, too, because there was a cup of black coffee in my room and i never drank coffee then.
